A stunning view and a lovely painting of it , well spotted Frank.

Another smasher Frank, so much to interest the eye and a symphony of greens too!

Wow lovely painting 🖼

A really lovely sunlit painting.

Charming and beautifully painted, Frank!

Thanks again for commenting. Fiona, I don't think I have ever used such small brushes!
